The adult females of all Coccidae (Hemiptera: Coccoidea) known from New Zealand are described and illustrated. In addition to the four indigenous genera previously known (Ctenochiton, Inglisia, Lecanochiton and Pounamococcus), seven new genera are described (Aphenochiton, Crystallotesta, Epelidochiton, Kalasiris, Plumichiton, Poropeza and Umbonichiton), all of which are considered to be fairly closely related to Ctenochiton and all endemic to New Zealand. Within these eleven indigenous genera, 25 new species are described and 12 species are transferred to new genera, bringing the total to 43 species.
